drawing lace ...strange practice in principal and action...tangent from collograph prints of embroidery...interested in exploring 're-creating' pattern through drawing and printmaking...cultivate a sense of volume, warp and structure...
referring to D'Arcy Thompson and Phillip Ball for inspiration and information on implicit pattern, natural formation, etc. ...think there is an important reflexiveness between natural and cultivated patterns...perhaps this relates back to the Wunderkammer themes that seemed to have infiltrated my consciousness
